I'll update this review once the wedding happens!Sent on 12/28/2019
Our experience at ALNC has been nothing but positive, transparent and easy. Duncan and the staff that we have contacted are great to work with and accommodating to my questions and requests as we are planning our wedding. ALNC has a lot of experience as a wedding venue and their professionalism shows.

Amazing space for indoor/outdoor nature-oriented wedding!
The Aldo Leopald Nature Center was the perfect venue for our October 19, 2019 wedding. The location was beautiful, and the indoor/outdoor options made dealing with the weather non-stressful! The staff were extremely invested, flexible, and accommodating.
We were able to have our wedding outdoors among perfect fall color, and our reception indoors while allowing the guests to mingle and mix between the nature trails, and the recently roofed-in patio/deck. There were also multiple rooms for photography projection (thanks to Duncan for making a great slide show!) and the 3D globe projection room was a big hit. The venue was well set up for a progression from outdoor ceremony to indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, to indoor dinner and dancing with options to hang out in lots of spaces. This allowed our 115 guests to ‘choose their own adventure’ which was phenomenal.
The ALNC also helped cut down on our price and stress of wedding planning. They provided an amazing support staff (shout out to Duncan for answering all our questions with expediency and good cheer!), and also didn’t have any ‘gotchas’ with price. Chairs and tables were provided for a small additional fee (far less than rental!). We used an approved caterer from FoodFight and rented a few things (bar, patio heating tower, and clothes rack) from a la Crate Rentals. All in all it was a seamless collaboration in terms of food, bartending, and venue use.
Most of all, we loved supporting ALNC with our wedding. The center sponsors preschools and field trip programs, as well as public education and outreach. We were really happy that our wedding money went towards these missions, and we plan to come back to the center for events and hikes in the years to come!Sent on 10/23/2019

Perfect Venue for Perfect Day
Choosing the location to is one of the most important and potentially one of the most difficult decisions you'll make with your partner when planning your wedding. If the unbelievable beauty of the prairie, the masterfully renovated building with the incredible chandelier, the secluded feeling the trees of this nature preserve, or how professional and helpful Duncan and his team are, aren't enough of a reason to make the decision to book this venue for your wedding, consider that the money you'll be spending goes directly back to the children of the community to help with the recently opened preschool and field trip programs. Not only will you have the PERFECT location for the most special day of your lives, you'll also be doing an act of goodness, so you'll feel good about your decision as well.Sent on 10/16/2019
I can't imagine having a wedding in any other location.
